The Prize

Imagine waking up after your wedding on a paradise island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Vote for your favourites from our UK Wedding Awards 2020 shortlist and it could become a reality!

One lucky couple will enjoy seven nights at the boutique, adults-only Veranda Paul et Virginie Hotel & Spa in Mauritius. This fabulous prize is courtesy of Perfect Weddings Abroad, the UK’s leading weddings abroad and honeymoons specialist.

The UK Wedding Awards 2020

Designed for couples, it offers everything you could want from a romantic, relaxed tropical escape. Create unforgettable memories as your cruise on a catamaran around the lagoon, explore the local fishing village by bike or try fishing on a traditional pirogue and enjoy lunch in a local home.

You can go wildlife-spotting in a glass bottom boat, try windsurfing or stand-up paddle boarding, or make a splash snorkelling, all free of charge.

The UK Wedding Awards 2020

Come evening you can dine under the stars or choose from the hotel’s two restaurants – one on the beach serving signature dishes and seafood, and the other serving local flavours. What are you waiting for? Vote now!

Please note the prize does not include international flights.
